The asset building field has traditionally focused on asset building at the individual and family unit level. But imagine a world where people have an opportunity to share in the wealth and prosperity they help to create by controlling community resources and shaping decisions that impact their lives.
Community wealth building models include cooperatives, employee-owned companies, social enterprise, land trusts, municipal enterprise, community development financial institutions, community banks, and more. Join us as we explore existing strategies, best practices and innovative ideas for the Bay Area, which funders, practitioners, policy advocates and governments can support to build and preserve community assets and wealth and achieve individual, regional and national economic security.
